The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Website Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain name registered within a website hosting
account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of multiple domains at the same time in case that you would like to forward them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain address to the same account also, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you go for a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you are going to be able to manage the NS records of each domain address registered within it with ease. The Hepsia CP, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can control everything relevant to your web presence, provides a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a several clicks. You're also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain names uses right now and if they are the ones required to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially if it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you would like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
